We provide more fully guided tours than rentals (unguided trips) so we are likely booked up quite early before. In fact, Hanoi bike rental is just a small part of our activities.
No One-Way Rental Yet
Please note that we don’t offer one-way rentals as we have only one office in Hanoi. Many clients asked if we could deliver or collect bike(s) in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City – HCMC) or anywhere other than Hanoi and we are sorry to say “NO”. All rentals start and end in Hanoi.
We don’t rent bike(s) to inexperienced/novice rider(s) as Vietnam is not a place to learn or test your riding skills. If you want to hire a 250cc trail bike, make sure you are over 1.75m or have had good riding skills or ride/own one like this. Even if you send a deposit to book our bike(s), we won’t refund if you can’t ride the bike(s) reserved.
We don’t normally count 24 hours a day. If you pick up the bike any time before noon you pay for the full day. If you pick up before midday on the first day and return late afternoon on the next day we charge two days, not one day. However, we are flexible with the bike return. If you bring it the next morning before 10am, you don’t need to pay for that day.
You need to send a 50% rental fee deposit before collecting the motorcycle(s), motorbike(s), or scooter(s). No deposit refund if you cancel the booking or after you pick up the rented vehicle(s). The balance will be paid when you collect the bike(s)
Last yet importantly, don’t start off on an automatic, step-over scooter. In fact, these things have hair-trigger acceleration, usually, no foot brake, and the front wheel turns too easily. Instead, start on a 100 cc bike with semi-automatic (clutchless) gears. The discipline of changing gears means you will build up to speed more slowly, and therefore, more safely. The front wheel is easier to control smoothly. In general, you all have that foot-break instinct from your first push bike when you were kids so it helps. In addition, don’t fear the models with a clutch. It doesn’t take that long to get used to it, and it gives you more control and smoother shifting.

If you worry about a licence or just need the smallest and simplest scooter to commute around, hire a 50cc scooter from us. We have both automatic and semi-automatic from Taiwanese manufacturers like SYM and KYMCO. Honestly, we would like to provide a Japanese Honda product, but the price is unbelievable (around 2,000 – 3,000$US). This small scooter hire is not our official service, just on-demand so the availability may be limited at times.
